As we approach Thanksgiving, I think it is a good time to reflect on what I am thankful for.
For starters, I am so thankful to work on behalf of this incredible cystic fibrosis community. The drive of our volunteers, the support of our donors, the commitment of our CF families and most importantly the strength and support of people living with cystic fibrosis are bar none. This is a community that pushes up its sleeves and doesn’t just ask for change but makes change happen. Thank you for being there working with us to ensure that we are having an impact for the cystic fibrosis community.
This fall, we launched our petition calling on support for a rare disease strategy. In two weeks, we have over 18,000 signatures. I am so thankful to everyone who signed the petition and shared it with your community. Your support will be key as we show our new government that there is a critical mass of people in Canada who support the development of a rare disease strategy.
Thanks to all. I wish you a very Happy Thanksgiving and healthy fall.
